Not feeling emotionally well since becoming a parent? You’re not alone and support is available

 

1 in 7 new parents will be diagnosed with a perinatal mood and anxiety disorder (PMAD), and it's suspected that it is one of the most under-diagnosed mental health conditions. 

 

Sometimes...

  • ... it can be hard to tell if what we are going through is normal, or if we are struggling with postpartum depression or anxiety

  • ... the thought of having a mental health diagnosis is scary

  • ... there is shame, disbelief, and confusion about where to start and what to do

Toronto is filled with amazing perinatal therapists.
